The Fabre Museum of Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole presents a collection of European art from the fourteenth to the twenty-first century. Founded in 1828 thanks to a donation from the painter François-Xavier Fabre, it has been enriched over the years by gifts from generous and well-informed collectors.
Since its renovation in 2007, the Fabre Museum has undertaken to strengthen the understanding and appreciation of the great artistic movements that have made its reputation: Flemish and Dutch painting (Rubens, Dou, Teniers); the Renaissance (Véronèse, Cousin, Kempeneer); the seventeenth century (Poussin, Zurbarán, Guerchin); the eighteenth century (Raoux, Natoire, Guardi) ; neoclassicism, (Houdon, David, Fabre) ; the nineteenth century (Delacroix , Courbet, Cabanel, Bazille) ; and the twentieth century (Delaunay, Richier, Hantaï). And finally, at the end of the visit, the new wing that houses an exceptional gift made up of twenty paintings on permanent loan from Pierre Soulages. The graphic arts collection with over four thousand drawings (Raphaël, Le Brun) is displayed in rotation (to protect the works from prolonged light exposure) and organised by theme.
The hôtel de Cabrières-Sabatier d’Espeyran houses the decorative arts collection.
